Hi,

I'm passing an object of my class to a function as a pointer.

When I try to access and change one of the members of the passed object, I get access violations.

Am I overseeing something?

 

The code:

 

bool CD3d::LoadScene(CScene *pScene, CD3dscene *pD3dscene, CD3dcam *pCam)
{
		pScene->mEffectFilenames[0] += ShaderSelectOptimalGeneric(pD3dscene, &nrdirlights, &nrpointlights);
		pD3dscene->mShaders[0].SetLightCount(0, 1); //nrdirlights, nrpointlights);
}										

On the 2nd line it goes wrong.

Looks like within the function I'm only allowed to read from the passed object, even though I'm using a pointer to the object

(I've checked through debugging that mShaders[0] exists and is valid)

What do you mean by "access violations"? As in "you are trying to access private parts of the class" or "you are trying to access memory out of range"? What's the error message?

 

EDIT: Never mind. You used a debugger, which means that the compiler didn't complain.

sorry, got it.

The mShaders[0] was not created yet )-;

 

Time to clean up memory allocation/ bundle them in a separate function.

thanks for the help
